DRFAT meeting notes are here.

In a summary, the agreed upon edits to the BCD are:
1) BCD states that two IRs are desired and this need to be stressed
2) Write that all versions (20,14,2,0mr) are considered for single IR alternative
3) Move text describing 14mrad design appropriate location
4) Rename Rank 3 (compatibilities with physics programs) to Special Rank, to be weighted later, with input of all physics community
5) Edit text about multi-TeV
